Guest Post from Danielle of Polish. Glitter. Rock & Roll!

Hi guys!  Today I have a guest post for you from one of my besties, Danielle.  She runs the blog Polish. Glitter. Rock & Roll! and she was the first nail blogger I met up with in real life.  I can't wait to visit her while we are in Houston, and we are meeting for lunch today! :)

Keep reading and check out this cute nail art she did for you!  I love this mani so much... Maybe I will have to recreate it one day!

Hello all you Sparklers fans!  Is that okay, Ash?  Can we call them Sparklers?  lol I am so happy to be here doing a guest post for Ashley while she's on vacation.  She's actually here in the States and we are gonna meet up for lunch.  I am so excited about it AND this mani I created for her blog.


I knew I wanted to do a fun skittle mani with glitter bombs.  I thought doing purple would be really pretty and it's Ashley's favorite color, BUT I decided on teal instead.  I just like the teal/silver combo.
 

I started with a base of a no-name teal that I got from Urban Outfitters in an ombre set.  You can see my post about them HERE.  For the silver glitter I used Ulta Starstruck which is a super dense scattered holo silver glitter.  I used three coats.  Over that I layered L.A. Colors Color Craze Sparkling Diamond which is a multi-sized silver glitter in a clear base.
 

Ooooh!  Look at all that holo glitter!
 

For the stripes I used Kiss Nail Artist Fine Art pens in black and white and then a nail art brush to draw a cutesy little heart on my ring finger with the teal polish.  I topped it all off with a hefty coat of Seche Vite and I was good to go.  I did think to myself, "OMG this is gonna be such a pain to get off".  Thankfully I used a glue base so it will come right off. I hope you all enjoyed this super fun mani as much as I do.  Thanks to Ashley for having me and I wish her and her husband the best while they are here visiting family and friends.
